The Dean of the Faculty of Law, Masaryk University, announces a competition for position of Specialist at the Department of Constitutional Law and Political Science

The DialogUE project aims to collect and study all cases in which Czech and Slovak courts have submitted a preliminary reference to the Court of Justice of the EU. We are interested in all three phases of the preliminary ruling mechanism, i.e.: (A) the question referred by the national court, (B) the Court's response, (C) the follow-up decision of the national court on the merits. We use empirical methods to examine court decisions (systematic content analysis); previous experience with empirical research is welcome, but not required.

Essential requirements:

  • Master’s degree in Law or in another relevant field,
  • interest in European Union law, in judicial matters, in the national impact of EU law,
  • enthusiasm for scientific work, especially curiosity and thirst for knowledge,
  • independence, reliability, ability to persevere in solitary research work,
  • ...but also, team spirit and the joy of discovering new things together.

We offer you:

  • an opportunity to become part of an inspiring team with rich international experience (so far we work in a team composed of Z. Vikarská, N. Dřínovská, M. Pivoda, F. Vlček, and B. Budinská),
  • regular team meetings once every 14 days, otherwise maximum time flexibility,
  • pleasant workplace in the building of the Faculty of Law, Masaryk University, but also the possibility of distance cooperation,
  • the opportunity to attend conferences, present partial results and receive feedback,
  • results in the form of publications in foreign indexed journals.

The commencement: from 1st July 2022 or by agreement

The applications with CV, a cover letter, copies of education certificates will be accepted by the extended deadline of 31st May 2022 by the Personnel and Payroll Office of the Faculty of Law, Masaryk University, in the form of an e-application (see Masaryk University website – Competitions and Vacancies).
